newt gingrich in the primaries? is that what they want, the base or whoever you talk about, they want newt gingrich snapping at the media and kind of performing before the stage, given the theatrics you referenced? >> it's a split personality thing. mitt romney as i've been writing for months is a flawed candidate who won in a weak field. look who came in second. rick santorum. newt gingrich came in third, ron paul came in fourth. as i wrote that, that's not a field. that's a therapy group. of that group, you know, mitt romney was the most, is the most electable of that group. the process worked. i don't think the republican party can really blame anybody or even themselves for nominating the wrong guy. the trouble is the guy who is the best of the field lacks the common touch that wealthy, privileged people need. franklin roosevelt, privileged, wealthy, had the common touch. john f. kennedy had the common touch. ted kennedy and bobby kennedy did. nelson rockefeller did in new york. mitt romney does not convey that. >> that is such an interesting point, roger, you're making. i believe
guess it was in florida with newt gingrich where he basically took gingrich's pants off on the issue of what was in his investment portfolio and won that state by a big margin. this is obviously tk- different. it's a national audience, not a republican audience, he has to win people over. it's a different kind of challenge over a sitting president who is pretty smooth performer. what john roberts said is right, debates sometimes make a difference but not very often. normally what happened in debates people for you going in are still for you coming out and not a lot of minds get chained. chris christie saying it could change everything, it could happen but not very much. martha: if somebody loses their pants it might be a game changer. we'll be watch that very closely. >> that depends, martha entirely on the design of the electri lecterns. >> we'll wait for the town hall format and hope for that perhaps. you just mentioned chris christie, what do you think he is up to by that comment? >> i have no idea and i'm sure the romney headquarters in boston, they are scratching their heads up
on the race? former speaker of the house is here, newt gingrich. >> good to be with you. >> greta: i am curious whether you think the complete tapeville any impact whatsoever on the race? >> oh, i think it has some impact. it's a little bit like joe biden saying, they want to put you back in chains. it's a reminder of the depth of dishonesty, the appeals to racism, the factual false hoods that are at the heart of the modern left. what then senator obama said was factually false. new orleans got far more money than new york tea and a great deal of mon that he was not matched by the stafford act. the process of the federal government taking care of the people of new orleans, in fact, was far larger because of the problem was much larger. huan entire city that was a disaster, as opposed to the immediate crisis of 9/11 and the world trade center. but factual inaccuracies are at the heart of the modern left. if they have to rely on the facts, they will lose every time. so they just routinely engage in demagoguery, which the vice-president did today, talking about the middle class. all of thi
at getting under the skin of rick perry and newt gingrich. that's something obama has to watch out for as well. >> erin, you've been in ohio. unemployment there is at 7.2% which is better than the national average. the president's leading in the latest polls there. so how concerned is the romney camp about that state, and what is their plan? >> there is some serious concern in the romney campaign and in republicans throughout ohio that president obama is in much better shape. they point to cleveland where there is a very heavy population base, manufacturing is big there and the auto bailout really did help industries up there. and some of the thinking goes, if president obama can turn out a lot of people in northern ohio, it's over in ohio. and they might be best to look elsewhere. now, the romney campaign is taking a harder line against china than ever before. he's always been very strong against china. so that's a message that they think will resonate in ohio. another thing we heard from mitt romney tempering his tax plan, saying he is planning to cut exemptions so people can't l
gingrich over the issue of taxes and releasing taxes and transparency. that's what governor romney is, i'm sure, working on tonight. and the president as well. finding a moment where they can crystallize the debate into one line and capture the imagination of the press and the audience. >> brett o'donnell, alleges nwa to talk to you. we'll talk on the other side of the debate. appreciate your time. >> you're going to be doing fact-checking at the debate. >> a rapid response fact check on both candidates what they say, we'll check it. if the campaign is any indication, it wille quite busy. >> i bet you will be. >> more than the stump speech stuff. we've heard so much about the economy in the stump speech. where there be real moments? if you're practicing, practicing, what are the real moments we'll get to see? >> you just had brett o'donnell, what's fascinating he was a key player in preparing mitt romney in a couple of debates where he did very, very well in the primary, maybe saved his candidacy -- >> south carolina was a disaster and he came in at that point and then he made florida re
christie we all know and lovement remember in the primary debate when newt gingrich would take a shot at the press every time and that was everybody's favorite moment in those debates. chris christie does it well. does he it with a little softer touch, but still packs a punch. >> steve: we'll be watching wednesday night to find out how many zingers are included. thank you, ma'am. >> eric: you know where you can find a lot of zingers? >> steve: i know! when people aren't sticking their tongue out. >> gretchen: we'll be watching "the five." coming up next, brave zoo keeper has what it takes for a buffet in the swimming pool (they're not supposed to be in this country burkses that not stopping one state to give illegal immigrants a license to drive.
